Bruce was enjoying a leisurely bike ride when he was suddenly and tragically struck by a passing truck. He was airlifted to a local hospital and then to Health First Holmes Regional Trauma Center. His injuries included a crushed right foot, broken ankle, dislocated and crushed right hip, shattered pelvis, broken ribs, dislocated shoulder and punctured lung.
Daniel Segina, MD, was the Health First Orthopedic Specialist who repaired Bruce's ankle, reconstructed his hip and repaired his pelvis with 17 screws. "I can't say enough about Dr. Segina," says Bruce. "I am forever grateful for all he has done. It was primarily his orthopedic skill that I noticed, but he's also caring, loving, supporting, encouraging and no nonsense. At my lowest points, he never treated me from a distance - he is an incredibly special human being."
Today, Bruce has healed from the trauma of that fateful day and enjoys kayaking, bike riding, working outside, and even lifting weights. "Dr. Segina has continued to be a source of support over these past years," he says. "I am in excellent shape and have great quality of life. Thank you, Dr. Segina."
Hip pain may be the result of a sudden injury such as a fall but could also be due to a degeneration of healthy tissue at the hip area.Explore More
